Huskies shut out Lawton Ike

LAWTON — You know it’s a tough night when your punter is one of the bright spots, but that was the case as Lawton Eisenhower’s injury-riddled football team wound up on the short end of a 34-0 score against Edmond North and once again it was the passing game that most caused this key District 6A-3 loss at Cameron Stadium.

The Ike defense struggled to stop a team that loves to throw the football. Edmond North quarterback Luke Hoskins wound up completing 14 of 25 passes for 337 yards and three touchdowns, one a 94-yard killer to Luke Rossi that came early in the third quarter when the game was still up for grabs. On that play, and at least four other completions, the Ike defenders were right with the Husky receivers but were unable to go high enough and make a play on the ball.

“I thought our kids did a pretty good job being where they needed to be but we just couldn’t stop them,” Ike coach Boone Copeland said. “On that one touchdown (27-yarder from Hoskins to Nick Sandini) in the fourth quarter their QB makes a perfect throw against great coverage.

“They had some others where their kids just went up and made plays.”

The long TD pass to Ross was the toughest blow of the night and it let the Huskies off the hook after they had fumbled the second half kickoff and were starting at their own 4-yard-line. But Hoskins dropped back into the end zone and fired the ball as far as he could in the perfectly calm weather. An Ike defender tried to jump with the bigger receiver but he lost the jump ball and that was pretty much the final blow.

When Ike missed its best chances to score were in the first half. Starting at its own 20, Ike picked up a first down on an 18-yard completion from Pogi to Green at the Eagle 39. An offside penalty set up a first-and-five and Jarvis Jackson was able to get free for one of the rare times and raced 18 yards to a first down at the North 38.

Then Ike found itself at its own 41 with about a minute left in the first half when Green caught a pass from Pogi and danced down the sideline to the North 17. But that was the one that got called back and the Eagles never got any closer to paydirt.

Edmond North will welcome Yukon on Thursday.
